Do you work with products containing di-isocyanates such as foams, glues or adhesives? Are you aware that from 24th August 2023, all workers (employed or self-employed) using using mixtures containing di-isocyanates (e.g. insulation and filler foams used in construction and vehicle repair), must undergo training.
Not only that but all employers are legally obliged to keep a record of successful completion and ensure its renewal every five years.

They must ensure that the labelling includes the statement; “As from 24 August 2023 adequate training is required before industrial or professional use.” The suppliers must also from the 24 August 2023, check training information is available.
